1. “Leader Of The Pack” by The Shangri-La’s (1964)
She met him at the candy store. Which is odd, since Jimmy is the leader of motorcycle gang. I didn’t know those guys spent a lot of time at candy stores.

2. “Oops… I Did It Again” by Britney Spears (2000)
Out of nowhere, the song completely stops so some guy can give Britney the diamond old lady Kate Winslet dropped off a boat at the end of Titanic? Britney is right, dude… you shouldn’t have.

3. “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot (1992)
Listen to these skinny white chicks gossip about a sista’s ass for 30 full seconds. The entire rest of the song is stating evidence for why they are wrong. Even white boys got to shout.

4. “Shaft” by Isaac Hayes (1971)
It’s pretty rare that the backup singers tell the main singer to shut up.

5. “The Girl Is Mine” by Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney (1982)
This is perhaps the least macho example of two guys about to brawl over a woman. Not a lot of testosterone flowing here. It kind of seems like Michael is the winner, though. It is his album after all.

6. “Love Shack” by The B-52’s (1989)
This is a total mystery. It seems like he’s asking if she’s pregnant. If so, that is a very weird answer.
Listen to it at 4:47.
7. “Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus” by Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin (1969)
One of the most boner-y songs of all time. Was Serge a hypnotist or something? NSFW.
8. “Unchained” by Van Halen (1981)
David Lee Roth messes with producer Ted Templeman in the studio and the end result is, “Let’s leave it in. Makes the song even better.”
Listen to it at 2:16.
9. “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” by Meatloaf (1977)
Teenaged Meatloaf has been hooking up with a girl in a car all night, steadily progressing toward full-on intercourse (as narrated in metaphor by baseball legend Phil Rizzuto over a too-long guitar solo). But wait… the girl suddenly wants a life-long commitment and Meatloaf begins weighing options.
